If there is one thing every sane mind desires, it is FULNESS OF JOY. We know from reading the Bible, “FULNESS OF JOY” resides in God’s Presence. The Psalmist said: “Thou wilt shew me the path of life: IN THY PRESENCE IS FULNESS OF JOY; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore” (Psalms 16:11) Knowing where to look for FULNESS OF JOY brings up the question of how to get there. The Psalmist, again, comes to our rescue, as it is written: “ENTER INTO HIS GATES WITH THANKSGIVING, and into HIS COURTS WITH PRAISE: be THANKFUL unto him, and BLESS HIS NAME” (Psalms 100:4) THANKSGIVING will get you through HIS GATES and PRAISE will see you to HIS COURTS, but you are by no means in HIS PRESENCE. THANKSGIVING is deep appreciation of what God has done, is doing or will do. Many people get through the GATES, but few ever enter the COURTS, because they are ignorant of protocols of PRAISE. PRAISE is KNOWING and BLESSING the NAME of God. His NAME is Jesus Christ. This is the NAME exalted above every other NAME, “THAT AT THE NAME OF JESUS EVERY KNEE SHOULD BOW, of things IN HEAVEN, and things IN EARTH, and things UNDER THE EARTH;” (Philippians 2:10) Whatever is called PRAISE outside the NAME of Jesus Christ is INVALID. PRAISE will get you into HIS COURTS and WORSHIP will establish you in HIS PRESENCE. WORSHIP is the MYSTERY of daily living in and for Christ in ABSOLUTE SURRENDER to God, not an item on the weekly Sunday Service program. WORSHIP is what keeps the twenty four Elders in God’s Presence, as the Bible says: “The four and twenty elders FALL DOWN BEFORE HIM that sat on the throne, AND WORSHIP HIM that liveth for ever and ever, AND CAST THEIR CROWNS BEFORE THE THRONE” (Revelation 4:10) TRUE WORSHIP is turning your life over as “…A LIVING SACRIFICE, holy, acceptable unto God,…” (Romans 12:1) WORSHIP is continually PURGING your mind of SELF, CASTING DOWN “CROWNS” in absolute submission to God’s WILL. WORSHIP keeps the twenty four Elders in God’s Presence. The day they quit WORSHIP, they are out of HIS PRESENCE. Beloved, I have GOOD NEWS for you, God is actively searching for TRUE WORSHIPPERS who will continually dwell in FULNESS OF JOY. The Bible says: “But the hour cometh, and now is, when the TRUE WORSHIPPERS SHALL WORSHIP the Father in spirit and in truth: FOR THE FATHER SEEKETH SUCH TO WORSHIP HIM” (John 4:23) If truly you desire FULNESS OF JOY, receive Jesus Christ today, as your Lord and Saviour. Approach HIS GATES with THANKSGIVING, traverse HIS COURTS with PRAISE and enter HIS PRESENCE with WORSHIP, amen.
